A Delicious Baileys Bread & Butter Pudding that’s perfect for the Festive Season – Baileys, Brioche, Chocolate, Raisins and more!

Oh hey Bread and Butter Pudding.. it’s been a while! To be fair, it’s only been on my blog once so far, and in Hot Cross Bun form, so this is probably more of a classic. Just with an alcoholic kick of Baileys! 

So! This is a luxurious and delicious pudding that is guaranteed to satisfy your delicious and alcoholic puddings of dreams, that is ideal for the colder winter months of the year. 

I decided a while ago that I wanted to post a Bread & Butter pudding for winter this year, but as it was getting closer and closer to Christmas, and I got a little carried away with buying some Baileys when it was on offer, I thought I would combine the two! 

This is probably more towards a classic Bread and Butter pudding then I have ever made before, as I always love my twists with recipes, but it is still quite classically Jane with a few added extras. Baileys, Brioche, Chocolate and more. 

So, in my opinion, a classic Bread and Butter pudding uses bog standard bread, butter and then eggs, cream/milk and raisins with some sugar. This may be different to your classic version, but that’s what I imagine!

For this beauty, I decided to make it more luxurious and use Brioche. Brioche is still bread, but its a more indulgent version, with a sweeter and more delicious taste. Basically, the perfect bread for a pudding like this!

For the custard mixture, I would normally use Eggs, cream, milk and a touch of sugar, and this is no different… but this time, I’ve added baileys. An equal mix of cream, milk and Baileys makes a delightful concoction, and then an even better custard with the eggs and sugar. 

As I mentioned earlier, I always think that bread and butter pudding classically involves raisins or similar, and I have done no different here. However… as I know a lot of my readers are not the biggest raisin fans, so I went for half raisin, half chocolate chip. You can use all raisins, or all chocolate chips – it’s up to you!

I prep my Baileys Bread & Butter pudding by slicing and lightly buttering my bread, and swirling it into my dish. I sprinkle over my raisins and chocolate chips. Then, I whisk together my eggs, cream, milk, baileys and sugar and pour it over. 

I finish it off with a sprinkle of light brown sugar to get some caramelising in the oven, but this is optional! And then, I let it sit in the fridge for 30 minutes or so to really soak up the baileys custard goodness whilst the oven heats up, and then I bake!

This beauty really is best served warm, and on the day of making, but it can be reheated easily once. An extra drizzle of cream, some custard, or a small drink of baileys on the side… it’s up to you! ENJOY!!!

  • 400 g Brioche Loaf
  • Unsalted Butter
  • 75 g Raisins
  • 75 g Chocolate Chips
  • 4 medium Eggs
  • 200 ml Double Cream
  • 200 ml Whole Milk
  • 200 ml Baileys
  • 50 g Caster Sugar
  • 50 g Light Brown Sugar


  • Start by prepping your ingredients. I slice my bread into 2cm thick slices, and then also in half to get them to be shorter!
  • Spread a small amount of unsalted butter onto each piece of bread, and then put the bread into your dish.
  • Sprinkle on your raisins and chocolate chips!
  • In a jug, whisk together your eggs, cream, milk, baileys and sugar!
  • Pour over the bread evenly.
  • Sit the pudding in your fridge whilst your oven heats up - for 20-30 minutes!
  • Preheat your oven to 180C/160C Fan.
  • Sprinkle over the brown sugar, and bake in the oven forr 35-40 minutes, or until baked. You want it to be nice and golden on top, and perfectly stodgy.
  • Enjoy!


  • For this recipe I did my shopping at Sainsburys by chance - I bought the brioche loaf, and so on from there! 
  • I used the original baileys, but you can use any flavour you fancy!
  • You can use all raisins, or all chocolate chips. 
  • This is best served on the day of baking when it's fresh, but can easily be reheated once! 
  • Serve with cream, ice cream, custard or more!

      Dishes can vary so greatly in size that I didn’t specify. I believe mine was roughly 10″ diameter. Portions are noted on the recipe.
